No, there is no ETA for the next patch.
I absolutely LOVE this game, but the combat turns are too slow for me and my friends taste.
To solve this, we all had to download CheatEngine and activate the gamespeed edit, to run the game at 1.5X's speed.
The game feels fabulous at that speed.
However, could you PLEASE add a game speed/combat speed slider to the options so we can avoid having to go to third party programs.
